these republicans meaning john mccain and others don't have the support of some of their high ranking republicans like the house speaker. never mind the democrats. but what cnn's ted barrett has learned is that john mccain in particular missed a rather important closed door briefing giving information about what happened in benghazi and what he was doing at the time is having a press conference calling for this select committee complaining about not getting enough information and ted barrett learned he was not alone. very few republicans, most of the republicans on this, the homeland security committee actually came. since then, mccain's office told us that that was a scheduling error and why he didn't attend that briefing. but also, before we got that information, ted actually bumped in to john mccain in the hallway here and they had a very testy exchange when ted was trying to get information about why he didn't go and mccain said to him that he had no comment. ted said, why? i'm quoting here from senator mccain. i have the right as a senator to have no comment and who the hell are you to tell

votes are clustered in those big metropolitan areas. john mccain in 2008, excuse me, barack obama in 2008 won the 28 congressional districts with 80% of the vote or more and john mccain ten by that margin. that gives democrats a lot of votes in the big states, but it also means that there's not that many democrats in the chase and districts. this time obama carried the same number of states with that percentage and romney may have gotten that percentage in one or two districts in utah. maybe it's time for political scientists and abundance to rule out another rule about locks, who has a lot on which part of the government before that rule becomes obsolete. thank you. >> thank you. now tell us about the republican party. >> i think the temptation for the republicans is in any case with going through the stages of grief, first its bid to be engaged in denial and that is what you saw with the "the washington times" piece that was read today. it's understandable. it's the human response, but it would be very smart for the republicans to get further along in those stages and not stay i
